Dear Law Student 4 || Life Tips for Law School Students by Chukwuemeka Ginikanwa

Hi everybody, welcome to this weeks post! You can check out last week's post if you missed it here . This week, one of my favorite writers (I promise I'm not fanning out) Chukwuemeka is contributing. I met him while I was a university student. Emeka reminds me of Chimamanda and Achebe . He writes with such finesse, and his talent is hard to miss. I hope you enjoy what school was like for him. Enjoy!  I basically slept and woke up and university was over. All of a sudden, the memories became very faint. Things I thought I had achieved became pale. Nothing. They tasted like ash in my mouth. Final year at the University of Nigeria came with rather too many struggles. Finance was very tight. There were classes that I hardly understood what they were for. There was a Project to write. The deadline was close by and I had no laptop and of course, no money to use a Business Centre. Then they released the exam time table with quizzes in between. It was a mad house in my he

I hope you enjoy today's post. The Day that Changed Everything It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Externship had come to an end and we were ready to get on with it. By the dates on the calendar, we were to start our bar final exams on the 28th of August and end on the 1st of September, 2017. My study calendar had factored in those days. I was prepared to be do

Happy New Month! Dear Law Student 2: My Law School Experience

Hey guys! How are you doing? What'your week looking like? Personally, I can finally tick " Visit Ibadan " off my buck list. In last weeks post  here  my former roommate Chidera discussed some of her experiences as a student of the Nigerian Law school.  This week she shares her experience with her law school roommates, her study pattern, fellowship and so on. Continued from last week. ... it became very necessary. We had been pre-forwarded our task for the day. After the morning session of lectures, we went on a break and came back for the afternoon session to solve the task. This session was handled by Mr Kanu, a very brilliant lecturer who added humor to his teaching. Each group came out to present and answer questions. How this process went varied. If Mr Kanu was the one asking questions, then you had to be ready to give your 100 because his questions were brain twisting. This was basically the routine for the 17 weeks of lectures.  Tuesday was for civil litig

Stepping out of the airport and inhaling the dusty murky air that was Lagos state, I wasn't sure if I was still grateful to have been posted here for law sc

Happy New Year! While I Was Away

Hi everyone! It's been a hot minute  HERE  on the blog. I hope you enjoy the turn the blog will be taking as the days progress. Stick around as posts will become more regular. I've also made a decision to gradually reduce the amount of times I post my personal pictures here for reasons I will discuss at a later date.  From my previous post you'll notice I have decided to start posting pictures that relate to the post but are not necessarily pictures of me. I won't even tell you where to find me because you already know my social media handles. However, on my YouTube channel, I will upload a Get to Know Me Video so go and subscribe and click the notification bell there so that you don't miss it. I have decided to start a couple of thread/series here on the blog that will tend to law students and my audience that LOVES lifestyle, fashion and beauty product reviews. So, if you know any law students, or anyone in love with lifestyle and fashion posts please


My mother's people have a saying that the best time to find out if a woman is truly beautiful is during the harmattan season,  because you'll get to see her real skin/true beauty. Happy new month guys! It's that time of the year again when we begin to think of how best to stop our skin from drying out and breaking. You might find this post helpful if you plan on coming to Nigeria/west Africa between November-February. Click to Follow Me on Bloglovin People in other parts of the world go through winter, West Africans go through the dry and most times unforgiving harmattan. Regardless, the dry season as it is generally called is my favourite season. From dry skin to dusty looking skin to severe cases of broken skin with sores, if you have lived/live in Nigeria then you most likely have a harmattan skin story. To prepare your skin for this period, it's best you review your beauty regimen and find out what works best for you, and check in with your dermatologist if


Quote of the day:  “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” – Paulo Coelho It has been A WHILE!!! I know this post is late, and long due. However, I did not plan this break, blame the universe. After my last post here, my phone fell and crashed. Then, the one I started relying on prior to me getting my phone fixed crashed as well. I took it as a way of God telling me to take a break from social media, my blog and every other thing online and focus on getting my s**t together offline. I’ve had a wild ride! From getting betrayed by people I knew for more than 5 years (they FAILED, my GOD is good), to standing up for myself, to getting a new job, and meeting the vice president of Nigeria Professor Yemi Osinbajo, and a serving minister Aisha Abubakar it has been rough but I am grateful for the experiences (it can only get better from here).
